Playing Philosophy

Our philosophy is to develop players in order to produce a coherent and recognisable ‘style of play’ outlined in our playing vision.

Playing Vision:

  • Running with the ball in a positive manner at every opportunity.
  • Skills and confidence to dribble past opponents when necessary and with effect.
  • Comfortable playing in tight areas.
  • Receive the ball in a variety of situations in order to play round or through the thirds.
  • Combine cleverly and imaginatively with colleagues.
  • Maintain possession of the ball in all areas of the field when no attacking advantage is possible.
  • Aware of ‘overload’ situations with and without the ball.
  • Finish positively and accurately from a range of distances and a variety of situations.
  • Goalkeepers playing as the ‘deepest sweepers’. A player who can use his hands.
